There was great excitement today as we planned and took part in our trench re-enactment on the playground!
First, we imagined a character for ourselves, then we used boxes and card to make bayonets, guns, a dug-out and periscopes.
We set out the playground using furniture form the Y4/5 classroom. We used upturned chairs for barbed wire and tables in a zig-zag shape for the front line trench.
Finally we were ready! We took it in turns to be in the front line trench, the dressing station or the reserve trench.
The children really enjoyed it. It was great to see them applying their new knowledge from the topic.
